AN AMATEUR archaeologist has been given a lottery grant to help him dig into Lancashire's hidden past.
Paul Kay believes the moors around Lancashire have secrets to be unearthed which may give a rare insight into life in Anglo-Saxon times and earlier.
The founder of the Bolton Cambrian Archaeological and Historical Society has been awarded £9,900 by the National Lottery Awards For All scheme to help set up the society's headquarters and website, and to start exploring the moors.
